Today, chocolate just made history a little sweeter. Two of my favorite chocolates, American Heritage and M&M’s are joining together and chocolate lovers around the world are rejoicing!
Chocolate Makes History A Little Sweeter With Debut At M&M’S World®
For the first time, American Heritage Chocolate will now be available at the companies iconic M&M’S World store in New York City. There is a special celebration happening today, November 12th, so if you have a chance to stop by, visit the 3rd floor to learn more about chocolate’s rich history with American Heritage Chocolate’s mouth watering display and samples.
Since I’m a little ways away from New York City, we are celebrating in my home with a bark recipe using both American Heritage Chocolate and M&M’S. It’s almost Christmas time, this would make a delicious holiday treat for teachers, service men and women, neighbors and even for your own family.
Little History Fact
Did you know that chocolate has only been eaten as a candy or confection for a little over 100 years? For centuries, our founding fathers enjoyed chocolate as a hot beverage.
I’ve been changing out all of my holiday recipes to use American Heritage in place of baking chocolate. It’s a 1:1 switch and gives a dark taste mixed with spices that will give your recipe a unique taste. All of my friends love it, we do too!
Hope you have a chance to try it and use it in my American Heritage Chocolate & M&M’S bark recipe.
• 2 American Heritage Chocolate blocks
• Squirt of honey
• White Chocolate Chips
If you have a double broiler, that will work perfectly. If not, you can place a metal bowl (or in my case my kitchen aid mixing bowl) on top of a boiling pot of water.
Melt the chocolate until almost completely melted, when it starts to thicken up, add a splash of water and a splash of honey to the chocolate and continue to melt. The water will help the chocolate spread better.
Spread your melted chocolate onto a silicone baking mat and then sprinkle with chopped up M&M’S. Pat the M&M’S into the chocolate to make sure they will stick after hardening. Place it into the freezer and proceed with the next step.
Wash out your metal pan and then melt your white chocolate chips until completely melted. When done, pull your pan out of the freezer and drizzle the white chocolate on top of your bark with a fork.
Place back into freezer for a couple of hours until good and hard. Once hardened, break apart bark pieces with a knife or use a pizza cutter to make more precise pieces. Enjoy!
